SOCIAL EQUITY EXPANSION IS A HUGE OPPORTUNITY
Throughout the country, local governments have hired consultants to conduct “Social Equity Impact Studies” that attempt to objectively identify the damages that marijuana policing has created on predominantly minority communities. The results from these studies are staggering. In every major city, there’s indisputable evidence that minorities were arrested, harassed, and imprisoned at rates as high as 500% in contrast to their white counterparts for cannabis related offenses. As a result, city and state sponsored social equity programs have been created to provide inclusion and priority ownership access to the people negatively impacted by the war on drugs. Good Tree’s incubator and franchise solution is designed to help local governments implement and facilitate these social equity programs in cities across the country.
So far, the social equity ordinances and resulting programs that have emerged in cities like Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Francisco, and Oakland as well as Massachusetts statewide have good intentions. Most importantly, the social equity ordinances were successfully passed in the first place, which establishes the national precedent. Indeed, these social equity programs aren’t going away --- as Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, and Florida have all expressed intentions to create programs in 2019. Unfortunately, however, there’s been a massive shortage of resources like training and financing allocated to execute these social equity programs. As a result, dozens of licenses and millions of dollars of future cannabis sales have not been realized!
This is where Good Tree comes in.
Good Tree provides social equity applicants with ready-made dispensary and delivery opportunities, along with a proven curriculum and training incubator to prepare them for operating a Good Tree franchise.
All of Good Tree’s work falls into two categories:
Spending on legal cannabis worldwide is expected to hit $57 billion by 2027. The adult-use (recreational) market will cover 67% of the spending; medical marijuana will take up the remaining 33%.
The Company is currently managed by seasoned business and sector professionals dedicated to the success of the Company and efficient execution of its planned operations
